is a hall for a great orchestra. My expectations for the acoustics
of this new hall were very high indeed, and Birmingham Symphony
Hall is acoustically fulfilling all of my hopes for it. The
room has a beautiful sound. Already I see how truthful, how
natural and real the sound of this room is. This is clearly
a hall that will match and support a great symphony orchestra.
This room has a wonderful, wonderful immediate bass response.
The acoustics have great warmth, a very supportive warmth.
The truthfulness of the sonic quality of the winds is exciting.
The sounds of individual instruments throughout the orchestra
have an absolute beauty, a wonderful clarity.
